Subject: Amazing show!!
that was truly a epic show! where can I download the soundboard quality show from? any ideas this is a must have show for all Dead Heads.
this show needs to be noted for it's incredible shakedown....get it for this song alone....not the most incredible fall 79' but it's up there....
Subject: Shakedown of Samson
That may be two of the hottest back to backs I've heard from the boys! Amazing!
question for the reviewer that states Row Jimmy as being 18mins and longest ever....what time zone are you in? its a bit over 12 minutes at my house!'!!

Subject: Great guitar night for Jerry
I had to listen to this show several times to decide on a grade. Itâs an uneven show, but the good bits are quite good.
The appeal of this show is that Jerryâs guitar work is excellent on a lot of the songs. Thereâs Cassidy, Supplication, and Sampson, which are hot and fast. I like Minglewood from this period, and except for a patch in the middle, this one doesnât disappoint: Jerry smokes on guitar and Bob delivers a solid vocal. Jerry even makes Shakedown Street, a song that Iâve never been crazy about, into one of the highlights of the show. Shakedown is a group effort, as Phil does a great job, as do Bob and Brent on backup vocals. The jam from Saint>drums is another good spot. Black Peter is sweet. Don't Ease Me in is the best of the ending songs.
The trade off is that Jerryâs vocals are a bit shaky at times. Some songs, such as Alabama Getaway and High Time, are not all that inspired. Easy to Love You is a lite-rock yawn, but it usually is in any show. They get back to real Dead with Terrapin. Itâs a pretty good Terrapin, though not flawless, as Jerry flubs the lyrics at one point and has some tentative vocals in spots, and drags a little. The band sounds tired on Good Lovin'. However, the highlights of the show outweigh these deficits.

Subject: Best show of '79 ?
Longest Row Jimmy ever at 18 mins+
Comes out swinging and I agree with my predecessor that I completely missed this one. 1979 was never a year I had alot of interest in and was astonished at the pure hard driving / trippy power of these shows. This is no different - You will not be disappointed!
CHECK OUT THE FUNKY ECHO MACHINES AT WORK IN TERRAPIN AND LOST SAILOR + jam....
This show is one of the best on this whole site I agree 22 songs 7 before drums which contains a trippier and more synthesized Ollin Arrageed esque jam. Sorry 1/10/79 Nassau a l/t favorite tape now #2 for the year.
GOTTA GOTTA GOTTA GET THIS!!!
Subject: grab this one
what a damn good show.
shakedown is sweet.
setlist is great.
4.5 for sound
5 for jams
Subject: GET IT!!!
wow..the sound is SOOO good. It's that perfect mellowness of Jerry's voice and Brents keyboard. Classic 79'! The most aesthetically pleasing show I've heard in a long time. It's up there with Cornell 77'. I have nearly 1,200 hours of Dead on tape/CD and for some reason I have overlooked this show. It's automatically in my top five. Cornell, 78 red rocks, 72 Veneta, 2/13/70, AND THIS SHOW! IM NOT BULLSHITTING YOU. Don't let other reviewers who dont know what they are talking about, talk you out of downloading this show. The whole pre-drums flows so perfectly. Awesome Shakedown, flawless Terrapin, and a sailor > saint that is "just exactly perfect". GET IT!!!
I was just pokin around looking for a good Shakedown and thought I'd give this one a shot...
MY GOD MAN!!! This is so jammy and jazzy and funky and psychedelic-y... just alot of fun! And
the sound is damn good too!!! I've only heard
the Shakedown and give it 5 stars, sound is 4.5
stars... if anyone has any recommendations on
shows/songs with this same 'feel', upbeat and
happy, makes ya wanna smile, email me at email@example.com. Yeah. I know. The boys always make ya wanna smile!!!!!
Subject: So So
been listening to this one over a span of a few days. Some ups and downs for me. Jerry's voice
seems pretty shaky, first set was OK..Row Jimmy very nice, as was Brown Eyed Woman..I'm usually not a big fan of Shakedown Street..but this one had me wanted to jump out of my truck in traffic and dance yesterday as did Samson..after that I almost lost interest in the rest of the show..I still have Bertha->Good Lovin' and don't ease to get to.
Subject: My Birthday Show
This is my birthday show I HAVE to GEt IT!!!!

Subject: Awesome Energy!
This show gets an A+++ for energy and a straight-"A" for Recording quality! The old Keil Center was a horrible venue for sound quality, but you'd never know it, from this recording! A definite "must have"......Worth the download, simply for "Bertha" and "Terrapin"...
"By-Tor hath spoken.............."
Subject: good show
Candyman solo is very cool.
Shakedown gets pretty out there too, one of the better versions imo. the Brent song was kinda cheesy, but Terrapin was good as is Sailor>Saint. Black Peter is one of my fave dead tunes so this is a joy to hear. i like the winter79 run. good stuff.
the patch work is done pretty well taboot.
IT was only a matter of moments through space and reality. CM you are one stellar individual, i have people around me who think im amazing because i have access this all this music, but i am nothing in compared to how much dedication and enjoyment you have in what you do!! thank you very much, im here with you, and im vibeing along with all these 79 GEMS!!!!! keep on groovin brotha truck on
